Great acoustics.

Good venue in City Centre. The acoustics are great, the auditorium is well tiered, so everyone should have a good view and the seats are comfortable. There is a small gift shop, a... read more

Good venue in City Centre. The acoustics are great, the auditorium is well tiered, so everyone should have a good view and the seats are comfortable. There is a small gift shop, a restaurant which I believe has limited opening hours, and a couple of bars on different levels. The restaurant and bars have floor to ceiling windows overlooking the...

Saw Milton Jones here and had a great night. Sound, lighting and staging seemed to go off without a hitch so that we could concentrate on the act. Well organised, friendly staff, very helpful when they realised we had someone with us with limited mobility. Would use again.

I went to see Placebo here tonight with 2 friends, and even though the band were pretty good the venue was not. You can't take drinks into the auditorium, so if you want to quench your thirst you have to miss some of the show you've paid to see while you take a drink. Further to that, they impose a... More

Attended an 'Australian Pink Floyd' concert in the Waterfront recently. As usual the band were top class and I couldn't find fault with the venue either. The acoustics were stunning and, even though there was a full house, it still felt intimate. The tiered seating ensured a great view of the stage with no annoying backs of heads in the... More

This was an amazing concert performed to perfection. The Waterfront itself has improved, though some little things such as not being able to use debit cards at the bar, are irritating. However this is a beautiful building & a wonderful concert venue with great acoustics.

I've been to see many of the great names in entertainment over the last 40 years, and in many different locations. I hadn't been to the Waterfront for several years until a Drifters concert on Friday, and my word what a great night, The venue itself is handy, with masses of parking in the vicinity which is opposite the Belfast...

The venue itself is really well laid out. Been a number of times to different events. The last event was the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, who were immense. Generally, the staff are good at the waterfront, but last night there was one guy in the main auditorium who was a bit over officious. He stopped some people from recording, but... More
